The following episodes definitely exist as kinescope recordings:
22 September 1949 (missing opening minutes)
29 September 1949
6 October 1949
20 October 1949
27 October 1949

I don't know if the episode uploaded is one of these...but in any case, additional episodes do survive of this early & short-lived series, and I hope one of the PD TV on DVD companies issues some more of them.

The show you uploaded was the thirteens, and last, 'Fireball Fun-for-all', aired on Oct. 27, 1949.
Every kinescope from the 40's is a priceless gem. Thanks for sharing this one with us.
'TV4U.com' has an episode from July 5th, 1949 on its website.

Thanks for the info!

It seems that the three shows this episode competed against also survive:
"Crusade in Europe" episode from that date is held by Paley Center for Media;
"The Morey Amsterdam Show" episode from that date is held by UCLA Film and Television Archive;
"The Ed Wynn Show" episode from October 27 1949 possibly also exists.
